Jose Mourinho has personally thanked the Tottenham Hotspur fans for their continued support despite a tricky 2019/20 campaign which has seen some ups with plenty of downs (Spurs official).

Spurs have turned around their Premier League form under Mourinho after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked in November with the Lilywhites in the unfamiliar position of fourteenth in the table (Sky Sports).

Tottenham are still in contention for Europa League qualification having just beaten Leicester City 3-0 in their final home game of the season.

“However, it has felt like the stadium has not been empty at all as the television cameras ensure millions of you around the world can see us,” He said in an interview with the club’s official match day programme ahead of the Sunday’s victory  (Spurs official).

“We know that you have been getting behind us from the safety of your homes and we can only thank you for that.

“We would love nothing more than to have you back in this wonderful stadium with us as soon as it is safe to do so and it will be a special moment for everyone when we are back playing here in front of a capacity crowd again.

“Please continue to look after yourself and your loved ones and I hope you are able to enjoy the remainder of the summer.

“I hope you enjoy the game. COYS”

Mourinho’s defensive style of play has divided the fans but in recent weeks has worked a treat and saw Spurs win their last three successive top flight matches.

With only an expected short summer break before Premier League football resumes for the 2020/21 season, Spurs go into the final game of the campaign as one of the league’s in-form sides.

Since Mourinho’s arrival in N17, Spurs have racked up the fourth-most points in the league, however, their disappointing start to the season has proved to be costly and ended their Champions League qualification dreams (The Sun).

Mourinho’s style of play will always divide opinion. When it works it works a treat but as seen against Bournemouth, there have to be occasions when we let loose and go for the win. Looking to next season, let’s hope alongside a few additions we can finally get our hands on some silverware.
